Banding together against cancer
PEOPLE are being asked to get a unity band to show support for cancer charities on World Cancer Day.
Four charities have unity bands in their own colours – Anthony Nolan has a black band, Breast Cancer Care, a pink band, Cancer Research, blue and white, and the Movember Foundation, a blue and yellow band.
The wristbands have two parts knotted together to show the strength of unity and are available at the world cancer day website for a suggested donation of £2.
Collectively the four charities support millions of people dealing with a wide range of cancers and the money will go towards the individual projects.
Lisa Adams, Cancer Research UK spokeswoman in Scotland, said: ‘So many of us have been affected by the disease, which is why on February 4 we are calling on Scots to join together and wear a unity band with pride. We’re partnering with Breast Cancer Care, Anthony Nolan and the Movember Foundation to promote World Cancer Day this year. By working together we can make a bigger impact.’
Television presenters Ant and
